  1. I don't like how it's set back farther than the existing building next to it. Seems to be somewhat common in a lot of modern developments, unfortunately.
  2. Okay this has to be a joke. They already started putting up the letters for Quicken Loans.
  3. Even if Ryan doesn't win the nomination (which I'm pretty certain he won't), this presidential run will probably give his name recognition a significant boost which could give a lot of momentum for a future US Senate or Ohio Governor race...
  4. I hope they paint those ugly pinkish-red beams in the parking garage so that they match with the brown-hued color scheme (which I actually like).
  5. I'm not doubting the possibility that the City isn't working hard enough to retain them, but also keep in mind that there's a significant lack of quality warehouse real estate within the city limits. It's been a problem for a few years (probably because warehouses are frequently torn down for housing developments in high-demand neighborhoods). That's why it's kind of a big deal that Weston plans to build some new office/warehouse buildings at Madison & Berea.
  6. Sorry for being crude, but is urban development blue balls a thing? Because I think that's what you're giving me right now.
  7. I'm sure this has already been answered, but will the new proposed MetroHealth health center be absorbing the operations of the McCafferty Health Center at W 44th & Lorain? If so, I'd imagine that site would be a very appealing one for developers to build new.
  8. ^ @eastvillagedon Is this the ONLY kind of stuff you post about on here? Do you have the ability to discuss anything that is actually significant, instead of small individual incidents like this one? Surely if you believe that incident is something to be concerned about on the left, what do you think about that Coast Guard terrorist and the rise of right-wing violent extremism?
  9. For the most part, I'm not mad about the new plan. The massing is pretty good, and hey, one story retail is fine with me (two stories might've been an unrealistic expectation to begin with). However, that massive curb cut is AWFUL. And are they abandoning the plan to make the rest of E 4th pedestrian-only? That's super disappointing.
  10. I think a lot of you are misunderstanding what exactly the term gender dysphoria is referring to. Gender dysphoria is the "distress a person experiences as a result of the sex and gender they were assigned at birth." So, whether you decide to call gender dysphoria a "disorder" or a "condition" or something else, that's beside the point. The term refers to the mental and emotional distress that comes from feeling as if you don't match with the gender and/or sex assigned to you at birth. It does NOT refer to the mismatch in gender identity as the issue by itself. Furthermore, the suggested treatment for gender dysphoria is to achieve self-acceptance and to live comfortably as the gender you identify (which may or may not involve gender reassignment surgery). Unfortunately, the most difficult part of treating gender dysphoria is the fact that the problem is largely a result of society's attitudes, which are obviously not as easy to change as it is to treat a single patient. So this is why so many transgender people continue to experience gender dysphoria even after they transition - because they feel so unwelcomed and unsafe in society. So people like Gramarye are only making things worse for sufferers of gender dysphoria. Simply because they refuse to make the effort to fully understand this issue, despite the significant amount of publications that are embraced by the medical, mental health, and social work fields. Why can't you just let people live their lives without being a bully?
  11. I understand why people want to avoid splitting up city boundaries, but that rule kinda creates a weird situation around Columbus. If, by 2020, Columbus doesn't surpass the average population for a congressional district, it'll all be drawn into one weird zig-zaggy district along the border of the city of Columbus. I think it would make more sense to split the metro more evenly (thus splitting the city since the city of Columbus is so sprawling and encompasses such a huge portion of its metro area). Fingers crossed that Columbus's rapid growth continues so that it surpasses the population of the average congressional district by 2020. But regardless, the maps under the new rules are clearly improvements over what we are currently stuck with.
  12. In eastvillagedon's defense, he's probably too solidly in his conservative bubble and generally misinformed to ever have had a chance to view this issue outside of hyperpartisan lenses.

    A pretty telling infographic showing how often Kavanaugh avoided answering questions, compared to Blasey-Ford.

    What makes you so confident Amy Barrett is the next choice? If I recall correctly, McConnell suggested against choosing Barrett because he was worried about her chances of confirmation. The White House is going to make the safest choice possible after this Kavanaugh fiasco, so I'm thinking it'll be Hardiman.
